SICK REMEDIES PT. 1

Sunday, September 23, 2018


I'm just going to accept that this picture has a blue haze rather than a white one. *rolls eyes* blogger + perfectionist struggles. Sometimes, you don't get what you want.

Ginger Tea is my all time favorite tea. It's a miracle worker. But you must be a ginger lover to love this tea otherwise you'll most likely throw it in down the drain. However, if you are sick and can tolerate the flavor ginger it'll heal your common cold symptoms.

I got a cold the past Monday and I've been making pots of this tea non-stop. For those of you that don't know, I hate drugstore medications. I've had my fair share of allergic reactions to probiotics and other prescription drugs I can heal myself with a natural remedy, I WILL. Keeping those toxins out of my body makes me feel better. I also drink this tea when I am not sick because it's delicious. Sweet, spicy, warm, and soothing.


WHAT YOU NEED
about*
3 cups of water
2 tablespoons of fresh chopped ginger
2 lemons
1 lime
4 tablespoons of honey

*I don't measure out this recipe but these are the
eyed measurements to what I like. 
You can add or subtract anything to your taste preferences. 

WHAT YOU DO
1// Boil water in a pot
2// Once the water is boiling add in the chopped ginger and juice of lemons and limes
3// Simmer on medium heat for 5- 20 minutes. The longer you boil ginger the stronger the flavor
4// When done boiling take pot off the heat and stir in the desired amount of honey
5// Pour tea into the cup (If you don't like chewing on chunks of ginger like I do, put a strainer over your cup)

Wanted to say happy autumn as well! I've been holding back doing all things Autumn all September because I want it to be officially autumn until I rejoice that the colder days are among us! Happy autumn friends! I'm about to collect some leaves.

  5. I don't like using drugs either when I'm sick and try to go for natural remedies too! I really like drinking something like this when I'm sick too, it's also really good for digestion and detoxifying, and it's delicious.

    Happy autumn to you too! Hope you're feeling better soon.

  7. This looks like a homemade version of the wellness shots that I see at Jamba Juice or those that Olivia Jade has talked about in some of her vlogs! 100% saving this recipe, so I can chug this when I can feel a cold coming on xx

    1. Well I make the tea even when I'm not sick if you ever want to make it then too haha! Haha but I totally understand not wanting to get sick. Thanks for reading.

  10. I feel like this time of year is when EVERYONE gets sick because school starts and all the germy little kids get together and then it spreads from there haha So, I'm just waiting (very afraid) until the moment it catches. So, this is such a great recipe to have. I agree about wanting to use natural remedies instead of over the counter, but I think for me it's mostly because I'm the WORST at taking pills. Great post!

  11. Hello Vanessa! Sorry that I haven't read your posts for a while but I was very busy... Anyways, I absolutely love that tea! I drink it all the time during autumn and winter <3 It's super tasty and so warming. Have you tried adding some cinnamon or/and cardamon to it? I think it tastes even better with it! Great idea for a post! <3
